I'm Tessa - 

Tessa is a 3-year old Red Heeler, a working cattle dog who was brought back to us after a run-in with her foster family's chickens. She's good with most dogs, although can be occasionally picky with certain female dogs if she doesn't have a job to do. Tessa's looking for a home and a job where she can direct her smart and focused mind.

I'm Darcy - 

Darcy is an 8-year-old Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is a delight! She has the most beautiful brindle coat. Darcy likes people of all ages, although she can be a little timid with taller men at first. After she's given an opportunity to sniff, she's back to her happy-go-lucky self. Darcy is good with other dogs, but will chase cats. She is very well-behaved and loves going for walks. Darcy qualifies for our "Senior Dog Discount." !

Our wonderful friends at Patriot Detail have offered a free vehicle detail for any adopters of "bully breeds" this summer. Darcy's adoption will qualify!

I'm Rosé - 

Rosé is a 6-year-old female pitbull terrier. She came to us with her sister, Chardonnay, and they are oh so sweet! Rosé is having a more difficult time adjusting to life in the shelter and is shy in her kennel. Chardonnay has a knack for reassuring her. They love to go for walks and play with toys. They are house trained and have great manners! They do like to chase cats. We would like to see this pair adopted together (ask about our "Companions Discount"). 

Our friends at Patriot Detail have offered a free vehicle detail for adopters of bully breeds through the summer. Rosé & Chardonnay's adoption will qualify!

I'm Ruger- 

Ruger is a 2-year-old male Hound. He is a joy! Ruger makes friends everywhere he goes. He is well-behaved and oh, does he have a nose! Ruger's nose often takes him for unexpected adventures. Secure fencing is a must for Ruger. Ruger likes kids and is great with other dogs. He is NOT compatible with cats. Due to his strong reactions to cats, we suspect he may have some hunting experience in his background. 

I'm Bear - Adoption Pending

Bear is a male Australian Shepherd, looking for a home with no kids.

I'm Honey Bear - 

Honey Bear is a 6-year old female Heeler. She's very friendly, likes kids, but would be happiest in a house without another dog. Honey is available to foster, or foster-to-adopt, but will soon be cleared for full adoption.

I'm Sara- 

Sara is a 4-year old female Lab and Border Collie cross. She's great with kids, and walks beautifully on a leash. Sara can be picky with other dogs, and definitely needs a home with no cats. Come take Sara for a walk on this beautiful day! Email beaverheadshelter@gmail.com to set an appointment.

I'm Samson- 

Samson is a 3-year old Border Collie McNabb cross. He's good with adults and older kids, but can be picky with dogs, and needs a home without cats. Samson is finding the shelter environment a bit stressful, but he's a sweet boy who will warm up once he feels safe and finds his people.

I'm Kenzey -

Kenzey is a 2-year old female large-breed mix who loves nothing more than to get out for a walk with a volunteer (she's got wonderful leash manners).

Turned in because of incompatibility with the household's other dog, she's a smart girl who knows lots of commands: wait, sit, down, shake, and more. She can be a bit timid at first with high-energy younger kids, but loves adults and warms up to people of all ages.

Kenzey could stand to lose a few pounds in order to be her healthiest, best self. She'd love to go for a walk today! Please email beaverheadshelter@gmail.com to make an appointment, so that we can keep the shelter to a safe capacity.

I'm London -

London is a 6-year-old female large-breed mix. She loves people of all ages! She is very social and wants to be involved in everything you're doing. London is not very impressed with other dogs. She is comfortable on-leash but is not interested in group play. She also thinks cats are fun to chase. London would feel her best as a single pet.  

I'm Tracker -

Tracker is a 3-year-old male hound mix. He is a snuggler! Tracker has been trained for hunting, although he was a little too laid back for the level of hunting his family wanted to do. He is an excellent running companion!

I'm Dude -

Dude is a 3-year-old male hound mix. He is a wonderful companion. Dude has not been trained for hunting, but we feel he could learn quickly, especially if he had an experienced dog to follow. Dude loves to go on hikes in the mountains with his previous family.

I'm Bandit -

Bandit is back from a wonderful time spent with a foster family, and is looking for a new home. He's 6 years old, and gets along with everyone. Bandit loves walks and cuddles and being close to his people. He had some separation anxiety with his foster family, and is looking for a home where he can be with his people much -- if not all -- of the time. Bandit is currently available for foster or foster-to-adopt only, but will soon be cleared for full adoption.
